Quote:I wish to point out one item on the list: NGC6445, "The Box Nebula" planetary, because it is the most rectangular nebula I've ever seen and fairly bright. We had no trouble seeing it in a 4".I Hadn't viewed it in years, and it's fantastic!
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
